    Alright, I was wondering where would be the best place to go to learn from scratch how to use this program, and to become good at it.

    From beginner to advance.....I was searching but I can't seem to find any.

    what aspect of it? There's modeling, texturing, lighting, animating, etc.. these are all seperate pieces that need to be learned.

    That's why i said from beginner to advanced, I want to eventually learn all that you can learn. I don't know where to start.

    The beginning.

    Start with the modelling, nothing else is much use if you can't model.

    Well alright, but I have searched for tutorials and things like that, but I can't seem to find anything to start with. I can find little tuts, such as how to make this and that, but not actually learning the program and tools.

    best way to learn the program and tools is using it during the tutorials.. :)

    I never thought of using them, since everytime I have used tutorials from the program themselves, well they suck.

    I will try those, but any other places ideas people?

    Glad I could help, I still crack it open from time to time and learn new stuff. Or relearn the stuff I have forgotten how to do. :p

    If you need any help feel free to PM me, While I'm not a 3ds Max master I might be able to help you out if you need it.

    I'll be sure to ask any questions once I get it.
